can this burner PF13L160EI go on pilot? how does the electric ignition work?

Outdoorstirfry:

The left knob controlling electronic ignition can be turned counter clockwise. Along the way toward its 90 degrees, you will hear hissing sound of the gas going out of the copper ignition pipe. About 90 degrees you will hear a click. The click generates a spark in front of the pipe to ignite the flame.  Once there is a flame from the ignition copper pipe, you can turn on the left knob to give gas to the main burner. Once the main burner has flame, you can turn off the electronic ignition pipe flame. There should not be a standing pilot flame on the ignition pipe as a long standing flame is detrimental to the ignition wire insulation.
